    Ordered on the 9th (from Apple), and its still "prepared for shipment", not feeling very hopeful at this moment.

    I am in the same boat, ordered mine early a.m. on the 10th. I think apple put the breaks on shipping confirmations cause ups was showing everyone phone as delivering early. I hope to receive a shipping notice today, I spoke to an apple rep yesterday and was assured my phone would arrive on Friday. If I don't receive a shipping notification today by noon I will be on the phone again.

    I have been in prepared for shipment for three days, but just got the email that my order has shipped. It shows that is shipping fed ex with delivery tomorrow. I am sure the rest of you that ordered from Apple will be getting your emails shortly.

    UPS has not updated the status of mine since 4am yesterday, 6/17. Still shows

    LOUISVILLE, KY, US 06/17/2009 4:00 A.M. THE PACKAGE IS BEING HELD FOR FUTURE DELIVERY. UPS WILL ATTEMPT DELIVERY ON THE DATE REQUESTED

    I think I have already gotten the letter from Apple that you reference. That one told me to expect delivery on 6/17. That did not happen. There may be an advantage to Fed Ex.

    I ordered mine from Apple on Monday, have been Prepared to Ship since Tuesday PM, but this morning just got my shipment notification: FedEx. But tracking doesn't work just yet (must not be entered into the FedEx system yet). Looking good for tomorrow delivery!

    We look forward to a report from you.

    I think that Apple will meet its original commitment. However, in order to do that with equity, they used a new procedure, invented on the fly, post announcement. The old practice was to deliver to UPS and put the UPS date into the letter. Both misleading and inequitable in this case.

    That is wierd. My buddy in LA was told that it was not a guarantee for him to get it on the 19th since supply is low.

    I ordered two iPhones from ATT on the 11th and the status is In Process. I'm sure I could get them tomorrow but I'm not counting on it.

    What would happen if I went to ATT tomorrow morning to buy two at $199?

    Any ideas???

    Did you get different color/size than your friend? Maybe the one he ordered has a higher demand.

    Go straight to the UPS or FEDEX site and manually enter your tracking #. I had the same problem with the tracking link in my apple ship notice.
